Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Mar 4, 2017

Picture if you can traveling to a remote area,  being stripped of all your clothing, meeting a complete stranger (also naked), and being left to fend for yourselves in the raw elements of the forest or jungle. Could you do it?  This is a real scenario for Laura Zerra, one of the original cast members of the Discovery Channel's Naked and Afraid. We first met Laura at a dinner table in Las Vegas and turns out there's much more to Laura than being a reality television star.  As you might suspect Laura is full of life.  She is a survivalist and a hunter. In this episode we learn quite a bit about the elements of survival, tips on surviving in the wilderness, sleeping in coyote dens, what tarantulas taste like, and how to learn from the animals you hunt, and why Laura developed a style of hunting called persistence hunting.
